The Department of Nursing Science produces research data (basic/applied) on health promotion practices and their impact in community care and in patient care, and on nursing outcomes. One particular focus area is intervention research on operating environments related to health promotion, clinical nursing and health education, where working methods, operational models and gauges for the effectiveness and quality of nursing and nursing education are tested. Our research projects are carried out in multidisciplinary and international research groups.
We promote the health and well-being of communities and patients and the development of health service structures through high-quality, impactful research. We contribute to solving challenges related to promoting the health of people of all ages. The operational priorities of European and global health care affect the research we do.
Research at the Department of Nursing Science addresses the outcomes of nursing in the promotion of health and in the treatment of long-term health problems, with multiculturalism and digitalisation as its strategic focus areas.
